123 Challenge: October

Hi everyone,

Sharing my page for the challenge at 123 this month.

And here is my page and some close ups:

I created this background by tracing circles through a circle template. I then used Tim Holtz distress stains (twisted citron was the perfect LIME)  through a spotty stencil onto some of those circles. I plastic bag stamped for some random green splashes around the page. I also used the Tim Holts Distress ink pen (in cracked pistachio) to add some highlights around the circles. I also stamped with my old favourite maiden-hair fern stamp! After placing the white background on a spotty green background (same paper used to matte the photo), I also machine-stitched in black thread around the outside.

I embellished with:
Vellum envelope and vellum bow from Rainbow Splendour. I wrapped black twine around the centre of the bow for a different effect.

Oh... even an old Purple Pumpkin fabric button from my stash!

I also used paper flowers, resin flowers, old fabric flag and enamel shapes/dots, all from D-lish Scraps.

The clear black stickers from MAMBI were perfect too!
Thanks for looking!
